I re-watched the stage and followed both riders closely. I'm not sure Pogi had been more in the wind than Rogla. Maybe if you just go with the accumulated time at the front of the group (I'm not sure that'd be the case though). But Roglič was in the wind for 20km straight (from 46km till 26km to go) where nobody gave him a single turn. While Pogi was never pulling for more than 2-3km a pull. All of Yates, Chaves, Valverde, Bilbao, Landa, Vansevenant, all of them were doing multiple pulls in the chasing group. I think it's harder to do 20km altogether full gas, than doing 1km, then taking a breather for a couple of minutes, then pulling for another 2km and again taking a breather and so on. You get the point.Well, that would have been a very different race. Moreover, I am not so sure it would have worked out that way regardless. TP had been in the wind more than PR, and had less willing participants to toe him to the line.
LOL about the insane engine.
